Stages in joining our Digital Freelance Network

About the process

At The Space, we work with a nationwide associate network of freelance digital specialists, many with specific cultural sector experience. These associates enable us to deliver our activities in an agile, flexible manner across all UK regions.


We are often on the look-out for freelance digital specialists to help us deliver our programme of work. So why not get in touch with us, tell us a little about yourself and your skills and experience. If these match what we’re looking for, we’d love to find out more about you.
